About Leslie


Bio

My first career was as a nuclear professional. I spent six years in the US Navy submarine service specializing in power plant operations and health physics. The next sixteen years I was employed at the Perry Power Plant, Perry, Ohio. I spent three years as an environmental technician and coal plant trouble-shooter, four years in the health physics group, six years in public education and information, and three years as emergency planning training coordinator.

My first career was as a nuclear professional. I spent six years in the US Navy submarine service specializing in power plant operations and health physics. The next sixteen years I was employed at the Perry Power Plant, Perry, Ohio. I spent three years as an environmental technician and coal plant trouble-shooter, four years in the health physics group, six years in public education and information, and three years as emergency planning training coordinator.

I began my second career as an educator after completing my master's degree. I spent three years as a tutor with a Solon-area tutorial service, ten years as a tutor for IEP students at Mentor High School, and have tutored privately since 2008 while in retirement. While my math skills are considered excellent by parents and students alike, my favorite assignment is ACT tutoring. I have had great success with all subject matter tested by ACT.

I have extensive experience with "special needs" students. This is not only with math, but also with respect to both college boards. I cater my approach specific to each student.

I'm constantly told I'm not a typical teacher. All people are different, and that also goes for High School students. Interested? I will answer all well-intended questions.
